Exam tutorial is silent about the number of questions
This year, no changes have been made to the CAT exam pattern 2016. However, the number of questions each section will have was kept a secret. It was expected that the number of questions which will be asked from each section will most likely be revealed when the exam tutorial will be out. But, the official CAT 2016 exam tutorial is silent about the number of questions. In fact, the tutorial shows the question pattern and placement just like last year. There are 34 questions each in VA/RC and QA sections and 32 questions in DI/LR section.
There was rumor that this year CAT may have 44 VA/RC questions and 28 questions each will be asked from the other two sections. Since, the exam tutorial still keeps the number of questions under the wraps; there are slight chances of this rumor turning true. CAT is any day a mystery which cannot be solved until the exam day. The students are advised to prepare for CAT 2016 in such manner that last minute surprises thrown by CAT shouldn’t bother them much.
